BackCare Swansea Branch is a self-help support group affiliated to the National Back Pain Association. We hold regular meetings throughout the year, at 7.30pm on the fourth Tuesday of the month (February to October) at Laugharne Court, Aneurin Way, Sketty Park, Swansea.
- Meetings and Talks
We arrange regular talks on many aspects of back care and subjects of general interest. Members’ suggestions for topics are always welcome. Most meetings include a gentle exercise session led by our physiotherapist President and much appreciated by all, as well as a cup of tea or coffee and an opportunity to chat with other members. We also hold three social events during the year, a Winter Social, a Summer Party and a walk and lunch in July.
Membership of Swansea BackCare also includes the possibility of taking part in Hydrotherapy Sessions in the NHS pool at Singleton Hospital. The fee (2020) for hydrotherapy is £25 per month for one one-hour session per week.
Due to the Corona Pandemic all the activities of the Swansea Branch are currently suspended. It is intended to re-start them as soon as restrictions allow.
